The Hanukkah meal is a special dinner for us during the holiday season, we look forward to it all year. As soon as the gluten-free latkes hit the plate, they seem to disappear. Boys + latkes = lethal combination.

I am sharing our Paleo Hanukkah Menu so that you too can enjoy this amazing holiday whether you are Jewish or not.

I began the tradition of making apple sauce from scratch shortly after the boys were born. Every year since they have devoured my homemade apple sauce. I also serve roasted broccoli (one of their favorite everyday dishes), though you could roast other green vegetables such as asparagus or zucchini. Of course, I bake a chicken, which my husband loves. This is our traditional Jewish (Paleo) meal.

Fried food is a huge part of the Hanukkah tradition, and I must confess, it is my favorite. I make it healthy by keeping oil to a minimum and not deep frying anything.

What is your favorite way to make latkes (fried vegetable pancakes) and what condiments do you serve them with?
